    www.neelscastillon.com A mesmering murmuration of starlings. We were shooting for a commercial, waiting for an helicopter flying into the sunset, when thousands and thousands of birds came and made this incredible dance in the sky. It was amazing, we just forgot our job and started this little piece of poetry... Enjoy ! Directed by Neels CASTILLON Shot by Mathias Touzeris Produced by Masterfilms. Music: Hand-made - Alt J

      झलक [jhalak] Life. Thrown into a chaotic mess, moments pass by and you grow up. People come and go. Opportunities pass - there will be more. Hope. Understanding. God. Is it really what you think it is? Before you know its over again. And all you got is a glimpse. Jhalak was shot in Bombay, Delhi, Bundi, Ranakpur, Jaipur and Jodhpur. Shot with Magic Lantern RAW and stabilized with the Freefly MōVI M10.

          Hermit Crab Migration This morning I received an urgent telephone call from my good friend Pam Gaffin. She was terribly excited about an event that was happening before her eyes. Pam told me it was a migration of soldier crabs also called hermit crabs and there were millions and millions of them she likened it to the migrations of Serengeti. I didn't need to hear anymore, I loaded my car with cameras and was out the door. Pam told me that this began this morning at sunrise at Nanny point near Concordia. I have heard about this migration for years and knew that it occurred in August, I can't tell you how happy I am that Pam called. Pam you're my hero.

              This is a short piece we shot and chopped when we went down to Monterey this weekend. The Monarchs migrate up and down the coast to try and survive the winter. We got a unique opportunity to photograph them off the beaten path. Tourists gather at the park in Pacific Grove to observe the monarchs over 60 feet away. We were given access to a nook where we could almost reach out and touch them. Historically, most of the western population of monarchs settled in the fog shrouded Monterey pine forest of Pacific grove. To survive, the Monarch migrates to safe overwintering sites that are neither cold enough to kill it nor so warm that it wastes precious energy flying too much. Monarchs west of the Rockies come to Pacific Grove and other locations along California's Central Coast. En route, they may travel as far as 200 miles a day, and fly as high as 10,000 feet.The magic and mystery of the Monarch migration has charmed and captivated Pacific Grove residents and visitors for many years. Unfortunately the phenomenon of the annual Monarch migration is endangered, The eastern population is being severely impacted by deforestation in its Mexican overwintering grounds and the western Monarchs are being squeezed by the constant pressures of coastal development and dwindling space.

                300.000 Norwegians move house every year. If the pattern made by this process could be compressed into one short animation, what would would it look like? What could you learn about your country from such an animation, if anything? Deluge is a C++ application designed to answer these questions. The underlying data was generated by cross referencing Norwegian tax records from 2006 and 2007 to find changes in postal codes. More here: http://vis.bengler.no/deluge

                  Stellar Media's MIGRATIONS series is an ongoing documentation of the relentless pursuit for perfect conditions. Traveling long distances is a matter of survival for some animal species, however for the adventurous human it is a way of life. All creatures are connected by a natural impulse to search, discover, and live. For in the end, we must all follow our instincts. The inevitable change in season presents new opportunity for discovery and if we listen closely to MotherNature, then we may just find ourselves in the right place at the right time. http://willwissman.com/ http://www.stellaradventuremedia.com https://www.facebook.com/StellarAdventureMedia http://instagram.com/stellar_media Athletes: Colter Hinchliffe, Lynsey Dyer, Lexi DuPont, Sam Cohen, Leo Ahrens, Jacqui Edgerly, Thayne Rich, Wyatt Caldwell, Yancy Caldwell, Vanessa Aadland, Hayden Price, Kalen Thorien, and Tony Rossi Behind the Scenes: Will Wissman, Reggie & Zach Crist, Jeffrey Loewe Narration: Bruce R.

                    The annual wildebeest migration takes place in the Masai Mara, Kenya and the Serengeti, Tanzania. It is known as the “Great Migration” and is one of the most iconic events in Africa. One of the largest obstacles the migrating animals face is the mighty Mara River. Through a combination of telephoto video clips and wide-angle time-lapse sequences, we aim to illustrate the scale and drama of this incredible spectacle. We have never before seen a wildebeest river crossing recorded in this way... as far as we know, this could be the first time that time-lapse has been used to reveal the dynamics of a wildebeest river crossing.
